Michelle Gomez, known for her role on Bad Education, has been cast as the Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere on the upcoming season of Doctor Who — and it looks like there will be some familiar faces along side her! The official Doctor Who twitter shared this photo of Gomez, Peter Capaldi, and some of those havoc-wreaking Cybermen!
Speaking about the role, Michelle Gomez said: “Well of course Peter Capaldi is our next Doctor, which makes complete sense. I’m thrilled to join him. Well, you would be, wouldn’t you?”
Lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, added: “I’ve known Michelle for years, and I’m thrilled to welcome her to Doctor Who. She’s everything we need – brilliant, Scottish, and a tiny bit satanic.”
